    This is a big step in the right direction for the franchise and I can only hope that things continue that way in the future.

    Capcom has gone a little bit experimental here, but what we have here, episodic or not, is a step in the right direction. We miss some puzzles, but there's some Resident Evil soul in this game.

    While it has obvious areas for improvement — its level design, its online functionality, its visuals — Resident Evil Revelations 2 has a strange sort of confidence in what it's trying to do that the series has needed for some time now.

    The most shameless vehicle for the series' gun fetish yet. [Apr 2015, p.114]

    It has its strengths, including some pretty cool monster design and fun puzzles, but by and large, almost everything it does has been done better by another RE title.

    Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is a step backward in this new spin-off series. It has a lot of content, but the episodic nature of the game has contributed some problems to the story and the gameplay, both of which are full of fillers.

    Raid mode returns, and while it’s not as exciting or fast paced as what we saw in previous title's Mercenaries modes, it adds an incredible amount of longevity to the game.

    After initially being turned off and instantly dissapointed because I felt like this game was too "actiony" I gave it another chance becauseAfter initially being turned off and instantly dissapointed because I felt like this game was too "actiony" I gave it another chance because my options were limited in survival horror. (basically played past 1 hour).
    If you rely on your first hour of the game, like me, you will MISS OUT!!!

    I'm a classic RE fan(1-3). And I am hard to please in this regard but I must say the atmosphere and the story/plot was nicely delivered. It was suspenseful and I felt it captured the whole "conspiracy" element the original titles had.

    This was my favorite game on PS4 honestly. I was shocked that it was that good for me.

Fans asked to the return to old Resident Evil with modern controls and implemented mechanics from games such as Last of Us -- and there you have it, that's exactly what this game is.

    Overall the game is solid

    The episodic format, though at times jarring, works well when Capcom do it right and is something that I am not against in the future. The only issue once again is Capcom’s vision for the franchise, which is almost an unfair statement because Revelations 2 is a good game at its nucleus.

    The eternal question for the franchise remains: Can the series still be classified as survival horror? Given that Revelations is a spin off series to the main game, there is a bit more flexibility with creativity and focus. The problem is that it plays like 5 and 6: Action-packed with a few light scares thrown in. Capcom needs to stop trying to please all fans of the franchise and stick to what it does right. Because what it does do right it damn right nails.

    I did enjoy this game but maybe because I'm a big resident evil fan and it was nice to see Claire and Barry back. It was more horror than RE6I did enjoy this game but maybe because I'm a big resident evil fan and it was nice to see Claire and Barry back. It was more horror than RE6 and a darker tone but still missing that resident evil atmosphere from the old games. Decent story but still felt like a linear run and gun game. Not the worst resident evil in recent years but nowhere near good enough right now the resident evil 1 remaster puts it to shame of how a resident evil game should be made and played. Expand

    This will be my first and last resident evil game. The storyline sucked, and the bonus modes that are needed for plat sucked.

    What the hell
    This will be my first and last resident evil game. The storyline sucked, and the bonus modes that are needed for plat sucked.

    What the hell is the point of playing a game where you don't know where the enemys are unless playing as a specific character that doesn't fight? And then getting wrecked. Invisible mode is the stupidest thing i've played in awhile.

    Countdown mode was ok and normal.
